Sabertooth Cat   1 comment

For the last day of summer before school starts again, I took my daughter to the Cincinnati Museum Center, at Union Terminal.

They had a few exhibits about the saber-tooth cat, a prehistoric felid that is no extinct.

I believe this is a member of the smilodon genus, probably smilodon fatalis. These lived in North America, going extinct around 10,000 years ago. In all likelihood, prey animal went extinct around the same time.

They had models of several prehistoric animals on display including this sabertooth cat.

The model suggests that most baby cats are cute!
